Online 2nd BS Degree in Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education, BS


Nationally there is a critical need for master's-level or doctoral level professionals in the field of communicative disorders. Many individuals already holding bachelor's degrees who would like to pursue these professions are lacking the required undergraduate prerequisites needed in order to be considered for admission into graduate programs. The Department of Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education at Utah State University has developed an online second bachelor's degree program to help fulfill this need. In order to be accepted into this program, students must have received a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. or Canadian university in another discipline.This second bachelor's degree program consists of 12 COMD online courses. The entire program may be completed during three semesters, but can be "stretched out" over a longer period if desired. All courses in the 2nd BS program are taken online.

A 3.0 overall GPA within the first bachelor's degree is strongly recommended. However, students having a GPA below 3.0 will still be considered for admission. All students should make note of the following policy:

Admission into graduate school programs is very competitive. A competitive grade point average from this second bachelor's degree program will greatly increase the likelihood of being admitted into graduate school. For this reason, students in USU's second bachelor's degree program must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA in order to continue in the program. Students who fall below the 3.0 GPA at the end of any semester will not be allowed to continue until they raise their GPA back to 3.0 or higher by retaking courses.

Applicants may transfer to USU up to 5 credits of undergraduate communicative disorders courses. These credits must have been completed as part of a CAA-ASHA accredited program. In order to use these courses to replace equivalent courses within USU's program, permission must be granted by USU's COMD 2nd bachelor's degree advisor.

American Institutions Course:


Candidates for a second bachelor's degree who did not satisfy American Institutions requirements in the first bachelor's degree, must satisfy any deficiencies in these requirements before receiving the second bachelor's degree.  These courses are typically the general education courses completed as part of a bachelor's degree.

Strongly Recommended Courses (not included in this program)


The following non-COMD courses are strongly recommended and may be required for certain graduate schools. Most graduate schools require a statistics course as a requirement for admission to graduate school. If students have not already completed a statistics course, they should do so. If you have not completed courses of this type as a part of another university degree, you should discuss this in more detail with your advisor. Some of these non-COMD courses may not be available online at USU or taught every semester.
